#JWPBlog – Important Changes in Copyright Law in 2022

16 February 2022

The deadline for the implementation of EU Directive 2019/790 on Copyright and Related Rights in the Digital Single Market (the so-called DSM Directive), adopted by the European Parliament and the Council (EU) over 2 years ago, expired on June 7, 2021. To date, only few EU countries have fulfilled this obligation.
